One miserable rainy night, Douglas Clayborne goes to buy a horse and finds himself staring down the barrel of a rifle. Behind it shivers one very scared--and very pregnant--woman, Isabel Grant. He disarms her, and delivers the baby (not quite in one skillful motion, but almost); however, the trio's troubles are just beginning. Got three hours to burn? One White Rose, the second book of Julie Garwood's trilogy, The Clayborne Brides, is like an old-time Western in the best tradition--a stoic, super-competent hero, a spunky heroine, a kindly old doctor, and the lot. Looming above them all is the villainous rancher Boyle, who not only wants Isabel's land, but her body as well. He and his henchmen have the entire town of Sweet Creek, Montana, peeing all over themselves with fear. Will Douglas and Isabel fall in love? Will Douglas and his gunslinging brothers save the day? What do you think?
